This long time Texas truck has been owned by the current owner for over 33 years. It is a good solid truck, powered by a stout iron block 250 cubic inch inline-6 paired with the 3-speed column shifted manual transmission. The truck has been repainted in white and has a few interior updates. This is a good old cruiser, riding on its factory 16-inch steel wheels and radial tires all around. This truck really has the look of yesterday and is fun to drive.

Many of our photos were taken at the Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum, located only minutes from our showroom. Be sure to visit our friends at the Flight Museum if you find yourself in Dallas, Texas. Texas Classic Cars of Dallas showroom is located only a few miles away from the museum. The exterior showcases an older repaint on the all original body. The paint and body are in good condition, showing some minor flaws. The interior features cloth & vinyl bucket seating along with older updated gauges. The gauges are functional. An AM/FM cassette stereo was also installed. The 3-speed column-shifted manual transmission goes through the gears as it should and is paired with the stout 250 cubic inch inline-6 cylinder engine.

The wood bed is in great shape as are the interior and exterior bed panels. Under the hood is this stout iron block 250 cubic inch Inline-6 (block casting #328575). This powerpalnt runs out strong. The engine compartment is plain, with standard brakes and no accessories. The firewall, inner fenders, and core support steel is original and solid. This truck runs cool temperature going down the road here in Texas. It does have a heater. The glass is decent. The windshield has a few large chips and the window track has scratched up the driver's side glass from rolling up and down. This truck could use a new set of window felts on both sides.

The undercarriage is good and solid. The differential is a GM 10-bolt. The spare tire/wheel is bolted into place. The cab corners and flooring appears very solid throughout this Texas truck. The front end is in good condition as is the bed underside. The original vin tag is still in place, complete with its correct flower rivets. The door undersides are solid, right and left as are the rocker panels.
